10:00pm
so, maybe you're trying to fiwell, let me give it a shot. if you're ok with marylanders spending five hundred and... fifty million a year gaming in other states, fair enough. but if you think we should keep that money here... add twelve thousand jobs, and generate millions for schools... well you should probably vote for question seven. because if it doesn't pass, all of this goes away. that's why the post called seven, common sense. but decide for yourself. fox 5 counting down to election day with less than 48 hours until the remaining voters hit the polls. how are president obama and mitt romney spending their time? >> thank you for joining us. i'm maureen umeh. >> i'm laura evans. now we are counting down to
10:01pm
hours after months of campaigning, advisements and -- advertisements and debates, it comes down to tuesday. >> both candidates are sprinting to the finish line by making a mad dash around the country. >> reporter: president obama beginning his day with a rally in new hampshire. >> it's a who's between two different visions for -- choice between two different visions for america. >> reporter: former president clinton joining mr. obama, defending his economic plan. >> no one who ever served as president of the united states and no one living within america could have fixed the financial crisis in four years. it is not possible. >> reporter: governor romney holding rallies in four states today, starting in iowa.
10:02pm
>> do you think obama care created jobs? did his war on coal and oil and gas create jobs? did the regulations help banks make more loans? >> reporter: romney also campaigning in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning the buckeye state. >> an eye to eliminating or repairing any that are killing jobs. >> reporter: vice president joe biden in ohio, and paul ryan in minnesota and ohio. steve brown, fox news. mark plotkin joins us now. good to see you. >> good to be back. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. it's looking like that is where it election will be decided, why? >> it's 18 electoral votes, and they have a real record, the
10:03pm
former package, previous package said no republican has ever been elected without ohio. since 1964, every democrat who has won has had to win ohio. jimmy carter didn't win it in the second time, gore lost it, dukakis lost it, and clinton won it twice, so it really is a predictor. it's 18 electoral votes and romney can win without winning ohio. >> already we are seeing problems in ohio with what amounts to voter suppression. the obama camp has deployed an army of lawyers. what is going on there? explain it. >> i think you should remember his name, i wish he had his picture, because he'll be the new katherine harris. remember her? she was the secretary of state of florida. he's a republican, and was elected in 2010. he sent absentee ballot applications to every voter in
10:04pm
ohio. and then some took part n sending back the absentee ballots. some got the ballots after requesting them, they'll go to the polling place on election day, and say no, you must cast a provisional ballots, and those can't be counted for 10 days. the long and short of it, i figure about a half million provisional ballots will be cast that won't be counted. and then to make matters worse, he send a directive out on friday saying that if the poll workers don't accurately put something in the envelope, the vote could be negated. the democrats are obviously going to go into court and try to overturn this. so you have a real big mess in ohio. >> very murky rationale there. a clear winner come tuesday night? >> unless the president wins in florida and virginia and doesn't need ohio and also wins
10:05pm
in wisconsin and iowa and nevada and new hampshire, if it comes down to ohio, we won't have a winner. and we won't even have the votes counted till 10 days from election day. >> i want to touch quickly on florida. you mentioned that another battleground state, four years ago, helped get out the minority vote. not so much this year. >> i'm not being partisan in any way, it's a question of a republican governor and republicans controlling both legislatures. they cut early voting and said there's no early voting on sunday. and that aided president obama who carried florida four years ago, because they literally marched people from the -- it was called souls to the polls, from the churches to the
10:06pm
precincts to vote. >> i'm getting a wrap. >> i'll be back. >> you will. see you next time. by the time the polls open tuesday, nearly a third of the country will have already cast their ballots. early voting has been huge in this election, especially in montgomery county. audrey barnes has that story. >> reporter: the early voting center in silver spring is dark now and quiet. state wide early voting is over. but before it ended, more than 17,000 people cast ballots early here. second highest in the county. >> easy. i voted across the street. hardly anyone there. it was great. simple. >> reporter: what do you think about having that option? >> i think it's absolutely necessary and i think more people would vote. >> i think it's fantastic. should have early voting. makes it easier for everybody to get to the polls. >> reporter: but long lines
10:07pm
were a common site at some of the sites in maryland, which turned off some. >> i tried to go thursday and the line was forever. i turned around, left. >> reporter: officials in d.c. and maryland were criticized for not having enough machines and staff to speed up the process. forcing some who wanted to vote early who brave the lines on tuesday. not everyone seems to mind. >> it's easy to get to, my polling place, was not necessary. i'm glad to know a lot of people turned out, that's promising. >> i want to vote on tuesday. i want to be part of the whole tuesday voting experience with everybody else, get my sticker, walk around. >> reporter: you want the drama? >> i want the drama. >> reporter: now the only voting option is early on tuesday. polls open at 7: 7:00 a.m. >> i guess i'll be up early. we're leaving the country at
10:08pm
noon. >> reporter: all votes cast before november 6th will be added up before noon election day and announced when the polls close at 8:00 p.m. audrey barnes, fox 5 news. take a break from the election process. time to turn our attention to the redskins and another disappointing day for the skins. scott smith joins us with what happened. >> this time. >> or what didn't happen. >> it had the feel of a blowout. fans were starting to pour out of the stadium halfway through the fourth quarter. they were only down by two scores at that point. just had this feel like there was no way to come back. >> and they didn't, right? >> no, they didn't, unfortunately. mike shanahan had been saying it all week. it was time to step up or shut up. if the season were to be salvaged it had to start today. step up they did not. self-inflicted wounds seem to
10:09pm
be the theme for the team. rg3 and cam newton and the panthers, a hungrier team. after converting two fourth downs, third time not the charm. cam newton leads his squad 98 yards, with this 19-yard strike to steve smith. great throw. better catch, smith's first t.d. grab of the season. panthers at the half, second half they strike big. newton finds edwards, huge block right there. inside the 10, but not after picking up 82 yards. punch to the gut for the defense and leads to this 1 yard cam newton keeper, 21-13 loss. mike shanahan with somewhat surprising comments following
10:10pm
the game regarding the future. >> with a game like that, you're playing to see who obviously is going to be on your football team for years to come, and i'll get a chance to evaluate players and we're not off it statistically, but now we find out what type of character we got and how the guys keep fighting through the rest of the season. >> when you bring up player evaluation it comes across as a white flag. 17 of the last presidential elections, had the redskins won prior to the election, the incumbent president retains his position. if they lose, the challenger wins. i guess mitt romney was pulling for the panthers. got his wish. >> thank you. >> thanks, scott. things are slowly getting back to normal in garrett county. officials say about 95% of roads have opened since 30 inches of snow and about 5400
10:11pm
customers remain in the dark. tomorrow public schools opening on a regular schedule with a few exceptions. time to turn things over to gwen talbart. should we be worried about this possible nor'easter? >> still a lot of questions with this storm. little too early to pinpoint everything down. we'll have to watch this closely. got a few clouds, but not bad. partly cloudy skies in terms. overnight hours. so very calm as far as tonight is concerned. next system, we have to watch it. we're looking at the energy diving down to the southwest, southeast, excuse me, and becoming a nor'easter heading up the coast. right now we have timing, strength and track of this system that is still all uncertain. looks like it will be a rain event, if anything at this point. but we're going to have to watch it because there are too

10:31pm
can determine where a photograph was taken. >> by looking at the horizon, and you have a prop here. by looking at the picture, the horizon of a picture, how does that help fema say -- find people who need help? victims of the storm. >> it looks at the horizon in this photograph, and then it matches that against data. we can simulate what it's supposed to look like in every location. so it matches all possibilities against the horizon from the photograph and looks for the best match. the best match yields a location. >> that would help them find victims perhaps who they might not be able to reach? >> right. or in this case, we have a lot of pictures of hurricane damage that from hurricane sandy that the gps information was lost somehow. so fema doesn't know where the photographs came from. if they could geolocate the
10:32pm
photographs, they would know where they're from. >> how did you figure this out? i know you have a passion for computer programming and image processing. obviously it was a mesh of the two. >> yeah, i've really loved science and computers all my life. i was coming out of ap computer science and looking for a research project, and i found out about the idea of geolocation. that just fascinated me. i had thought about that before, never thinking that was possible to find out where a photograph was taken. i started playing around with it, and seeing the horizons and that gave me the idea what if a blueprint, can tell you where the photograph is taken. >> how is fema find out about you and your project? >> actually, i met an engineer at a conference in the summer where i presented the research. he had gotten the e-mail from fema where they had gotten the pictures. he contacted me, forwarded the e-mails and asked me if i could
10:33pm
give him my software to geolocate them. >> how far could you expand this? >> it has wide applications. one big one is counterterrorism in the military. terrorists taking a lot of photographs. there are environmental. the environmentalists need to know where the pictures are taken. and robot navigation and photo tourism, where companies collect large photos on the internet. >> sounds like you have a bright future, my friend. >> thank you. >> samuel, thank you for being with us. wish you the best of luck. congratulations. >> thank you. >> maureen. >> i can say that all went over my head. great work, samuel. gas rationing started in

10:40pm
more games to play. but the direction they've charted through the first nine is full of disappointment. as they head into the bye week, they have two weeks to think about the missed opportunities. big moment early on today against the panthers. after successfully converting two fourth downs on this drive, go for it once again, and at the goal line, from 4th and 2, robert griffin iii is denied. carolinas' defense steps up. panthers score 98 yards later. newton to edwards, big gainer. great block by smith on the play. panthers capitalize on the play. cam, two touchdowns, one on ground, one by air.
